Killing of civilian by Indian troops in IIOJK condemned

Srinagar, October 08 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders and organizations have strongly condemned the killing of Kashmiri civilian, Pervez Ahmad, by Indian troops in Islamabad district.

Pervez Ahmad was killed when Indian troops fired on his vehicle at Monghal Bridge area of the district, yesterday.

The Hurriyat forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a statement in Srinagar said, such brutal killings have become a norm in IIOJK and thousands of Kashmiris have been killed in this manner with impunity by Indian troops. “When militarisation to repress is pursued as a state policy to handle a live and lingering conflict, rather than seeking conflict resolution, bloodshed and loss of precious human lives -are the consequence,” it said.

The Hurriyat forum also expressed grief over the killing of two teachers Supinder Kaur and Deepak Chand in Srinagar on Thursday and extended its heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families.

It reiterated that a just resolution of the Kashmir dispute through peaceful means is the key to end bloodshed in IIOJK and ensure lasting peace in the region. The Hurriyat forum extended sympathies with the bereaved family of the civilian.

The President of Jammu and Kashmir Anjuman Sharie Shian, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi, in a statement in Srinagar denounced the killing of Pervez Ahmad. He said Anjuman Sharie Shian had been demanding from day one that Kashmir is a political dispute which can only be resolved through meaningful and result-oriented dialogue among all the stakeholders.

The Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League Acting Chairman Abdul Ahad Parra, Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference Chairman Shabbir Ahmad Dar, Muslim Khawateen Markaz Chairperson, Yasmeen Raja, General Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir Political Resistance Movement, Dr Musaib, Jammu and Kashmir Social and Justice League leader, Fatima Jan, Jammu and Kashmir Peoples League, Jammu and Kashmir Mass Movement and other leaders and organizations in their separate statements expressed serious concern over the killing of several people in the last few weeks including Pervez Ahmad by Indian forces in Islamabad, Srinagar and other areas of the territory.

They urged the United Nations and Amnesty International to send their teams to IIOJK and probe the Indian brutalities in the territory.

Paying rich tributes to the martyr, the statements expressed solidarity with the bereaved family and sought help from international community to probe the killings in IIOJK.
